THE MOSAIC AGE
This week we shall review the Mosaic period, 1400 BC till the death of Christ in 33 AD.
Moses received the Ten Commandments on 2 tables of stone, part of the law of God (the Law of Moses) which he later wrote for Israel in 5 books called the Pentateuch, the first five books in your Bible.
After the Israelites crossed the Red Sea on dry land (Ex 14:22) they came to Mt Sinai where Moses received the law. God also gave the pattern for the tabernacle which was a type of the church of Christ which came later. It was their meeting place with God during 40 years wilderness wandering on account of their sins. When they finally crossed the Jordan River, they conquered the land promised (Canaan) under Joshua’s leadership. Later the people were given a king (Saul then David and Solomon) then were ruled by judges in a divided kingdom. The prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and others) foretold of the coming of the Christ who would be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14).
